Me and my retirement

by Nancy Berger
(Westlake, Ohio)

I am not feeling sorry for myself, but I had to retire from my beloved job of teaching children with multiple disabilities because I had two major epileptic seizures at work.

Am okay now with meds, but retirement is no fun for me. I should get going with writing again, find a new hobby, find friends, volunteer or get part time job. Am so depressed.

Wish it was anatomically possible to kick myself in the rear to jump start improving my life.

Thank you for answering my post! I see your point in beginning to write again! Did not consider my post to be a possible start to getting back to writing! Sometimes one just needs a jump start.

Wendy: Consider what you might offer the world in a book. What do you know that others might need to know? One question/One solution books work really well. Start Brainstorming! You've got a book in you and its so easy to self-publish nowadays!

Kick in the A**
by: Wendy,

Hey Nancy,

While it may not be possible to kick yourself physically,
you certainly can push yourself mentally.

If you enjoy writing, consider yourself started! You just wrote a post, though it is short. Next week, write about where you live, or your hobby, or about memories! You've taken the first step -- Just write! Here! Share life with others.

Then, if you decide you are enjoying it, consider a Kindle book or a blog... it's all fun, if you are a writer, and will kickstart other activities as you move mentally AWAY from Poor Retired Me... Right?

Go Girl... you just took your first step!
